One of the major problems in modern society is chronic inflammation. It contributes to numerous diseases such as autoimmune disease, Alzheimer’s, cancer, and heart disease. Research has shown that CBD oil may help reduce chronic inflammation by impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity thus reducing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters. When inflammation is active, it increases the production of damaging free radicals, a situation we call oxidative stress. When oxidative stress is running rampant, damage occurs to our proteins, and even our DNA.

Research has demonstrated that CBD oil may reduce inflammation and the damaging effects of free radicals. CBD oil modulates the function of the immune system and has demonstrated to be effective in dealing with various types of pain. This activity is thought to represent CBD oil working as an anti-inflammatory much as over the counter anti-inflammatory medications are used for typical aches and pains.
